The other day I bought 150 LTC on btc-e to make a purchase... It says clearly on their site that they have instant deposit/withdrawl for all coins.
I try to pull my LTC out and it says I must wait 3 days.
I emailed the admin... No reply for the last 2 days.
I finally got mad and asked where the admin of the scamsite was in the trollbox, and why they are withholding my funds and where the admin is... And I just got banned.
So no reply from support, and banned when I ask about the admins whereabouts.
To me this is an absolutely horrible way to handle a business..
Do not use this scamsite.

You can clearly see I have the funds in BTC-e.

When I try to withdraw it says new users must wait for 3 days before withdrawing.
Even though #1 my account is three days old, and #2, it says all coin deposits withdrawls are instant.

Admin won't reply for the last 3 days, and when i finally mentioned it in the trollbox i just got banned.

Well that's bullshit rule, if new member is not able to withdraw he should also not able to deposit money for first 3 days.


Anyways now do you need LTC only? Check if you are able to make btc-e code of LTC.
If you are able to do that, I can put it in my account and withdraw LTC on your address or i can simply buy your btc-e code for btc.

You can check my trust ratings first.

I would certainly take you up on this, as it would be a great help to actually receive my funds.
But they won't let me make a code either, it says the same thing.

It says very clearly on their site Instant deposit/withdrawal all coin.

Support doesn't answer emails.
I get banned for trying to track the admin down in the trollbox.
My account is over 3 days old now, and I still can't get my funds.
They are sounding more and more like a scam to me...

You will probably just need to wait then, maybe a day more to get new permissions activated.

Ps: I can understand you frustration but don't worry it's not a scam site (atleast not till now), so you will get your money back.

If you don't get money or reply from them till tomorrow, contact btc-e admin here.

Yes, even if they give it back to me RIGHT NOW, it will still have cause me a ton of problems.
I bought these LTC to purchase something, which I was not able to do in time.
This site has cost me an important purchase, it clearly says that deposit/withdraw is instant.
Support doesn't answer my emails, and when I asked about the admins whereabouts in the trollbox I got banned instantly.
Looks pretty scammish to me.

Wow I did not know new users has to wait three days, I was considering using btc-e for once to buy some LTC, but now I think i'll use vircurex instead. I don't want to wait 3 days just to withdraw to the client wallet.

So why not just wait 3 days?

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

#1 My account is 3 days old now.
#2 It says very clearly on the site "Instant deposit/withdrawal all coin"

Why would I want to wait three days? Nowhere on the site did it say I would be blocked from accessing my own funds, and if it did say that there's no way in hell I would have used it.

The 3 day wait is to prevent fraud.

Where is the logic in that?
I deposit BTC, buy LTC and try to withdraw it... How is fraud even possible and if it is, what does waiting 3 days expect to accomplish?

Accusing the site of being a scam is a bit much.

Wait out the 3 days, withdraw your funds. It is what it is, These measures are put into place to avoid fraud and scams that are widely happening everyday in this community.
